Sungyeol Scenario + Oblivious Hearts
Secretly admiring. What a noble concept. Is it actually possible to admire a person without giving them the slightest hint that it’s you who holds the affection within your heart? Secret admiration is rarely altruistic and some part of Sungyeol always hopes she will notice it’s him sending notes and treats whenever she looks like she could use a smile.
Lee Sungyeol is not subtle, but somehow he’s managed to pick a girl who is completely oblivious to his secretly admiring and it’s frustrates him.

She’s the reason why he’s skipped out ten minutes early from rehearsal tonight to meet her and she’s the reason why he feels so nervous as she glances over the letter once more, her eyes flickering over the written words.
“Yes, it just arrived today,” the girl answers sweetly. She carefully folds the paper containing his affections back into a tiny one-inch square, and Sungyeol feels like it’s his actual heart being reshaped into her hands until his feelings are no more than a single paper slipped into her purse. “I wonder who it’s from,” she wonders aloud, the same as she’s always done. But the question doesn’t seem to bother her and the girl leisurely lifts up the pumpkin spice latte to bring it to her lips. “This is the fifth one this week.”
